View Full Version : [ubuntu] desktop menu/panels

June 8th, 2009, 05:17 AM
On my desktop no panels or menus are loading. After reading some other posts. i typed gnome-panel into terminal. It brings this response.

** (gnome-panel:5436): DEBUG: Adding applet 0.

The panels and menus bar appear as I set them, but when I go to close terminal, its says there are processes running. Closing terminal then removes all menus and panels.

Is this a fresh install? What ubuntu version? what are the specs of your machine?

When did this start happening? After any updates or modifications??

I installed latest version y.day. It initially worked fine. I did some v basic desktop modification eg add a picture and a few icon, add or remove a few apps in the drop down menus

do it by Pressing Alt+f2, the terminal will kill the process every time but not Alt+f2
